Mediocre at best – The service was good, other than the annoyance of the waitress and a manager asking me how my meal was twice within a minute of each other and both times I had to finish chewing the rough steak to answer them.
They advertise "The Melbourne" as a 20 oz steak that is good for two meals. It is $25 and comes with 2 sides. They don't tell you that it is about 8 oz of t-bone, 6 oz meat, 6 oz fat. The baked potato was standard, just like one you could get cheaper at applebees. The blue cheese lettuce wedge salad was good. I took four bites of the melbourne, i couldn't even cut through it due to the various layers of fat and overall tough meat. It felt like i was trying to cut through it with a butter knife. I came here for a great steak and got a sub-standard hunk of trash. My entire meal, beer, tip was $40 and what I got was a beer, salad, baked potato and 3 crappy bites of meat before I gave up on it.
Another annoyance, the outside booths have lights that sit about 18 inches off of the table, they are very hot. I had to unscrew the light bulb to stop sweating.
The facility itself is aesthetically pleasing, the service was nice overall, but I go out to eat at steakhouses for a great cut of meat. I don't mind spending $40-$60 on my meal but it better be well above your average applebees steak.
I'm glad I went with friends the first time so I know never to take a date there.
I will never return to this restaurant chain, I found my experience at texas roadhouse to be much better.
Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor. – In Short
Boomerangs, Aussie flags, kangaroo portraits and faux aboriginal art honor the homeland's wilderness, but Outback delivers a polished version of rusticity with varnished blond-wood booths with matching wainscoting and casually uniformed waitstaff. Besides more than a half-dozen cuts of steak, diners can pick from large-portioned entrees like ribs, chops and shrimp or chicken "on the barbie." The Bloomin' Onion, a large onion dipped in batter and deep-fried, is an appetizer with a following.
Nothing special – Average american style food (wings, steaks, fries in many incarnations). Average service, but the atmosphere of the Steakhouses is fun.
I hope no one is under the illusion of believing that the food served here is Australian in any way! As an Australian I was somewhat bemused by the complete absence of any australian style food on the menu.
I'd recommend this restaurant to large groups/families who don't want to spend too much, but are looking for reasonable quality fare.
Alarmingly wonderful – This is by far the best steakhouse at which I've eaten thus far in PA. I don't have a single complaint; only praise for the wonderful staff and the excellent food. This will continue to be one of my favorites.
